CMS Announces Resources on Comparative Billing Report on Ambulance: Ground Transportation

Jun 04, 2014

CMS issued a national provider Comparative Billing Report (CBR) on Ambulance: Ground Transportation on May 23, 2014. The CBR, produced by CMS contractor, eGlobalTech, contains data-driven tables and graphs with an explanation of findings that compare providers’ billing and payment patterns to those of their peers in the state and across the nation. The goal of these reports is to offer a tool that helps providers better understand applicable Medicare billing rules. (These reports are only available to the providers who receive them.) Providers are advised to update their fax numbers in the Medicare Provider Enrollment, Chain, and Ownership System (PECOS) because fax is the default method of CBR dissemination.

For more information, please contact the CBR Support Help Desk or visit the CBR website. Register here for an informational webinar on the billing report- CBR201405 Provider Webinar - Ambulance Ground Transportation to be held on Wednesday, June 04, 2014 at 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM (Eastern Time). The session will be recorded and archived at two days following the event. FAQ’s are available here.
